The upcoming fixture of AFC Bournemouth and Arsenal in Vitality Stadium is going to be a thrilling contest as both the teams have been struggling in their respective aspects of the game and in this fixture, both the teams would try to fix their issues once and for all. Arsenal only managed to win five away games of the sixteen away matches they have played so far and as they would be the visiting team, the pressure would always be more on Wegner’s men. However, the home team has also failed to register more than one win of their last twelve competitive matches they have played so far.
If we go by the last six performances of both the teams in English Premier League then Arsenal has managed to fix themselves the 6th point on the points table with 39 points and the home team is very close to the relegation zone with 21 points, only managed to get the 17th spot.

Bournemouth has won only one of their last 12 competitive matches, but in turn are on a four-match unbeaten run. They have won only three times on home turf in the Premier League this season, however, and are yet to beat Arsenal in the Premier League, picking up one point of 15 available.
Arsenal has won only one of their last six competitive outings, yet have also lost just the once in the period. Away from home, Arsene Wenger’s side has failed to win 11 of 16 matches in all competitions and could struggle for all three points in this one.
